strange wabble in the front axle
I dont know if any one has experienced this before, but this one is definetly strange.
I come home this morning from my weights class, and my car does something really funny, soon after speeding up and having to do a short but strong break due to some idiot cutting me off my steering wheel is wabbeling.... so I let go of the steering wheel to see what it does and it seems the tires are going back and forth on the front axle, sorta like when you loose control on a bicycle....
I grab abck on to the wheel and speed up a little, and it was gone. thinking back it has done something like that at least twice over the last week or so. Any clue what could cause that? maybe one of the break pads got something in it or closeses up a little on its own? I dont know, it kinda feels like the left front break is grabbing on slightly for a spilt second then letting go again just to grab back on after one or two rotations.... cant hear or see anything so thats just a uneducateted guess.
I have to add to that, that my allignment is off a little.... always has been since I baught the car. the car tilts to the left slightly on its on.
thanks for suggestions,
